I could have had Christina's help, but then the twins would have had to come, too... That wouldn't have been a speck easier.
I was trying to remember how I did this with three kids eons ago and I decided I probably didn't. We had one car in those days. Grocery shopping was a family affair, and Steve was probably always with me.
Missy didn't go to school today. A friend, one of the teachers, called to tell me today was not about learning.... it was about root beer floats and movies. Thank you for the heads up on that. Missy can't have that much sugar, nor can she eat ice-cream with dairy in it, and she is MOST certainly better off without the movies. We don't have a TV here for a very good reason.
We're cancelling our Friday night Bible study and supper plans. My house is a wreck, Christina is leaving me to go camping with the Abundant Life church (in the pouring rain), Vanessa has piano juries later this afternoon, and Brianna is studying for her trigonometry finals. That leaves me with no extra hands to help with cooking and cleaning.
The little Duckling is really starting to get nice and round. He's much, much more alert, and he's wanting to eat ALL THE TIME! --Thus the lack of sleep. I was working really hard to hold him off till closer to the usual feeding time last night, but he was hungry, hungry, hungry.
